MyVirtualCPA :

I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to provide you with excellent service, and help you better understand your options.

MyVirtualCPA :

How are you today?

MyVirtualCPA :

You can rest assured that your daughter will continue to receive her benefits after you pass away

MyVirtualCPA :

She will still get a benefit, but it will be a survivor benefit.

MyVirtualCPA :

The amount should not change. Everything will keep on as it has in the past

Customer:

Would that also be true if she marries?

MyVirtualCPA :

If she marries, then she would no longer get the benefit.

MyVirtualCPA :

The benefit is only for unmarried adult children

Customer:

Thank you. I am currently a representative payee on her direct deposit account. I have written to

MyVirtualCPA :

Okay

Customer:

social security to have myself taken off, but they do not reply. My daughter is capable of handling the direct deposit card but I don't know how to get it in her name only

MyVirtualCPA :

You will need to call 1-800-772-1213 or visit your local office. Writing them a letter will not get you a response, unfortunately.

Customer:

Ok. Thank you so much for this information.

MyVirtualCPA :
